Newlyweds: The First Year

jeff blair

It's weird to think that the couples of Newlyweds: The First Year have only been married for three months.  It seems like ages, doesn't it?  Blair Late and Jeff Pedersen exchange vows before rocking out at a chic reception, while Kim and Alaska Gedeon don't see eye to eye on…well, anything.  Kathryn Bougadis is happy to be running a tanning salon, although John Lagoudes worries that they shouldn't be business partners.  Tina Sugandh creates a very unsexy sex calendar for a frustrated Tarz Ludwigsen .

Jeff and Blair head to historic Savannah, Georgia for their ceremony, and the couple is hosting a red, white, and blue party.  For patriotic Blair, the Fourth of July is almost as exciting as Christmas.  Friends toast the happy couple, and uptight Jeff is trying to enjoy the evening while having a touching talk with Blair's mom.

Tina and Tarz head to the gynecologist to talk about fertility.  Tina is disappointed that her doctor seems so young, and she is perplexed that the gynecologist isn't buying into her theories about how to up her chances for having a girl.  The doctor is extremely intense, but I can't tell if she's joking when she tells Tina she's on the verge of being very old.  She instructs the couple of the three times they should have sex each month.  Only three?  Tarz is disappointed.

It's a month in for the couples of Newlyweds: The First YearBlair Late and Jeff Pedersen speak to gay teens, while Kim and Alaska Gedeon spar over red carpets and tufted vintage sofas.  Kathryn Bougadis is thrilled to find out she's pregnant, although she stresses when John Lagoudes shares the news before she's ready.  Tina Sugandh puts a lot of pressure on Tarz Ludwigsen to give her a baby ASAP.

Tina is extremely dramatic regarding her biological clock, jokingly threatening suicide if she can't get pregnant and accusing Tarz of having lazy sperm.  It's a bit much, and by "a bit," I clearly mean it's ridiculous.  However, I do feel badly when she gets a negative result on her pregnancy test because she is visibly upset.  Meanwhile, four weeks into their marriage, Kathryn is freaking out over a positive test.  She's teary, and John is over the moon.  He can't wait to tell everyone they know.

Bravo is busy rolling out a ton of new shows and heavily promoting some old favorites. They've recently had some trouble in the Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff department though!

Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss are arguing off-screen over legal issues, and they are also fighting it out to save their spinoffs from being canned next season. Bravo, who apparently loves them some Kandi (probably because she is on the hugely successful RHOA), moved The Kandi Factory to Sunday nights in an effort to boost viewership

Last week the move worked and TKF received a bump in ratings.There was also a fist fight…  Unfortunately it's only temporary! Bravo Ratings says that this week's showing didn't even rank in cable's Top 100 shows. Even worse, this Sunday's episode garnered only 596,000 viewers, down 32% from last week and "rated lower than three of the four occasions it aired on Tuesdays." Ouch. I think we can expect that one won't be renewed! This weekend is the season finale.

Are you still watching Newlyweds: The First Year?  I am enthralled.  I can't wait to see what happens as Kathryn Bougadis becomes an unwilling housewife to John LagoudesBlair Late and Jeff Pedersen continue to plan their wedding, as Alaska and Kim Gedeon try to be flexible when it comes to living situations.  Tina Sugandh and Tarz Ludwigsen forgo a traditional honeymoon for twelve months of pushing limits.  A good idea?  That's to be determined!

Kathryn and John are four days into their marriage and enjoying their honeymoon.  The pair is contemplating a honeymoon baby.  While John isn't feeling pressure to have a baby immediately, he's having fun practicing.

Blair and Jeff are a week+ into their domestic partnership, and they're heading to Atlanta Savannah to finish planning their big ceremony.  Jeff is stuck on the term "commitment ceremony" while Blair is deadset on calling it a marriage.  Blair is convinced that his past lives keep drawing him to the historic Georgia city.  Jeff is excited to be out of town because out-of-town trips always enhance their sex life.

So apparently I wasn't the only one watching Bravo's newest reality show Newlyweds: The First Year.  I had 999,999 of my closest friends watching with me…give or take a few!

The series, which follows four couples through their first year of marriage, premiered on Monday night with three of the four pairs saying their "I dos" in lavish ceremonies.  The show promises to document the ups and downs of family, finances, sex, and the major adjustment that is the first year of marriage.

Money.  Communication.  Sex.  The first year of marriage faces multiple difficulties…and I'm guessing that having your life filmed during those initial 365 days isn't going to make things easier.  Bravo is now banking on the fact that half of all marriages end in divorce, and the network is following four couples as they face the ups and downs of the first year of marriage.  I think I'm going to really like watching Newlyweds: The First Year!

Tina Sugandh and Tarz Ludwigsen are preparing for their wedding.  She's an Indian pop star, and he's a dude named David who is always covered in glitter thanks to Tina's obsession with all things shiny.  Tarz is an unfortunate nickname.  The pair has been together for four years, and Tina never expected to marry a man who wasn't Indian.  Early in their relationship, the couple had intense sexual chemistry, but now it's just eh.    Tina's willing to power through on the wedding night so they can start a family right away, although Tarz would like to wait a while.

Kathryn Bougadis suffered lots of heartbreak before meeting John Lagoudes.  She's giving up her career and home in Manhattan to move in with John in Long Island.  The couple met when John spilled a drink on Kathryn at a restaurant, and they were engaged six months later.  Many of their friends think that they are moving too quickly, and John has a hard time giving up space in his closet for Kathryn.  Before John met Kathryn, he was engaged to a woman he'd been with for seven years.  He broke off the engagement four times before it finally stuck.
